An announcement of some importance:

Loki - the underappreciated and misunderstood - A Paean in Progress

is moving to

It's the same strangness at a new location,
with complete editorial freedom.

"Because sometimes we choose our Gods,
and sometimes, they choose us."

in ioci terribiles veritas

Please note: The Paean in Progress is only being updated on Don't miss out on the more recent additions.

My latest amendation: Ragnarok (revised and expanded) (8 July 99)

If you think something's missing... Loki and Baldr has now been moved to its own page (revised and expanded).

New outside contributions: Loki and Christ: A Scrutiny of Their Similarities by Carol Robe (27 June 1999). Don't check your sense of humour at the door.

The article which previously appeared in this space has been moved to

The Short Voluspa and Haustlong

In the interests of space, my introductory remarks and links to the texts of the Short Voluspa and Haustlong have been moved to their own page.

Loki: An Introductory Outline This was originally prepared at the request of the editors of the Midgard Web Lorebook, to give basic information on the Clever One to the general reader. The kennings which were formerly on this page can now be found here.

Sigyn All we can safely say about Loki's wife.

*new* Ragnarok Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jotuns

Mythic Time More questions than answers on how to approach the issue of time as it relates to our myths.

Summary First, it was "Otter's Ransom" and now a brief explanation of Skadi. These were originally posted to the alt.mythology newsgroup, but since they're relevant to Loki I thought these "Cliffs Notes" might be of some interest.

Giants, Thor, and Loki An incomplete dialogue touching on various points concerning the aforementioned, to be amended as time allows.

A little off-topic, but amusing enough that I couldn't pass it up: Top 10 Ways You Can Know You're a Berserkr in Modern Society by Úlfgrim Vílmeiðson. This was originally posted to a.r.a., but I thought it deserved a wider airing.

Why Am I Here?

It Said What? Or: If you can't translate it yourself, don't depend on a program to do it for you. An excrutiating example.

Works in progress: An article on Loki and "Trickster Theory," a more in-depth contextual analysis using the characteristics of the trickster as enumerated by contemporary scholars. Begs the question of why tricksters are among the most common mythological figures studied by scholars, but relegated by the contemporary pagan community to a small, dusty corner. Also: an article on Post-modernism as a Lokean paradigm.
